She then began working for Hy-Vee in order processing. She loved to work and loved to be with her extended family at Hy-Vee.
Connie enjoyed raising her family. She was blessed with four children: Pam, Craig, Kelli, and Tony. As all their families grew, she loved to be with her grandchildren. Connie especially loved to attend the baseball and basketball games of her grandchildren. They will remember her love, support, and sugar cookies.
Connie had a love for people and enjoyed volunteering, helping in any way she could and always thought of everyone else first. She belonged to the Yickety-Yak Club, a group of close friends that had been getting together for 55 years.
